Live By Living Day Hike: Betasso Preserve in Boulder. Sat. May 26

Join us on Saturday morning, May 26 as Tara leads a MODERATE 3.3 mile hike at Betasso Preserve in Boulder.  We will begin at the Canyon Loop trail, which starts in the high grasslands of the foothills before dropping down into the scrubland and forrest beyond, and finally looping back up to an open view of the valley beyond.  Trail is narrow at times and can range from icy to muddy, and dry to rocky.  Good footwear, layers and water recommended.



As always, Live By Living day hikes are open to all cancer survivors and their caregivers, men and women. Regardless of whether you are currently in or out of treatment, we’d love to have you join us. If you’re uncertain whether you are physically up for a hike, please call us at 303- 808-2339, and we can help you decide.
